    Unhappy Install disk will not boot.

    Hey everyone. Earlier I attempted to follow some instructions in order to install Leopard on my system. I got an error. So I tried to solve it by installing Vista, as I was trying to create a dual-boot system. So I followed the basic instructions here http://www.hackint0sh.org/f184/80904.htm So now, when I put in the install disk the countdown starts at the darwin screen and the disk runs, then I get this error message: "system config file '/library/preferences/systemconfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist' not found"

    Does anyone know what this means? I've tried both iAtkos and Kalyway disks and they both bring up the same message. Hopefully it's some stupid mistake and not a hardware issue. Also when trying to figure out the error, you are suppose to hit F8 to see other boot options right? When I try to hit F8 my keyboard doesn't respond (it's a wired USB keyboard) You can't type anything either. Except it works with Vista and the BIOS. I also tried a USB wireless keyboard too...same problem. Is anyone able to help? I haven't seen this exact type of issue elsewhere when researching so i've been unable to pin-point a solution.

    Oh yeah, here are my specs:

    Intel Core 2 Quad Processor (I think)
    4gb RAM
    Gigabyte p35-ds3r motherboard
    nvidia geforce 9800gt graphics card
    600 gb HDD
    etc.

    You can try disable USB keyboard/mouse, disable legacy USB in BIOS to see.
    If not then you may need a PS2 keyboard to go through.

    Thanks. Although you didn't solve the problem directly it helped. When looking for a way to disable the USB, I found out that a USB keyboard option was not enabled. That solved the issue. Duh. Got iAtkos successfully installed too. Thanks for the reply

    Glad to hear you got it
    Well done.

    There are only two options for kb and usually one of them should work. It depends on USB 1.1 or 2.0 module that was pre-packaged with OSX installer.

    Thanks for coming back and let me know.

    Cheers
